Man in BedGetting back in the dating game after having pulled yourself out for however long you were committed in a relationship can be fun, then frustrating, and eventually lonely. If you have kids, you are adding a whole new level to your dating/daddy life. How do you accommodate both your bachelor dreams and child's needs?
Those first few months (or maybe even years) of not being half of a whole, you take full and complete advantage of your renewed freedom. Dating (or bedding), let's be honest pretty much anyone who smiled at you.

Soon, you get comfortable in your singleness, totally uninterested in someone new doing so much as leaving lip gloss in the nightstand or a toothbrush on the bathroom counter. After awhile the same old same old becomes lonely and you look for someone who you can actually hold a conversation of meaning with. So you go on a serious dating (not bedding) rampage. But how do you know

Fat-Burning Tea It's time to detox. Question is: what route are you going to take? Master Cleanse, Vegan, Juicing, Enema, Colon Cleanse, Colonic, Intense Exercise, No Alcohol... or a less drastic option that isn't lifestyle disputing and is something that you can actually stick with- long term?

There are plenty of products, services, and plans promising to help you detox, burn-fat, and rev up your metabolism. Some are extreme- requiring a complete diet revamp, others are pill-based (made from who knows what), and then there's the best: a combination of lemon, cayenne, cinnamon, and hot water (no not the master cleanse). Why is it the best? Because it's naturally, gently, yet effectively fat-burning, metabolism boosting, and detoxing and you can incorporate it into your day, every day. How? Because every ingredient in the cup is a Bite with Benefits. I call it my "Special Tea," or my "Fat-Burning,

Pint of GuinnessWhether you're typically a beer drinker or not, St. Patrick's Day seems to be the one day a year when almost everyone drinks their share. For those who drink MORE than their share, they are often the ones waking up the next morning barely able to lift their throbbing heads, swearing off alcohol for good (this time), and shunning the site of the piles of empty beer bottles. But beer isn't all bad.
Studies have found that drinking beer in moderation can reduce your risk of heart disease, kidney stones and certain types of cancer. Another unexpected perk, if you are drinking Guinness (even Obama drinks it): you could be consuming fewer calories than you would have with that glass of Pinot or Cabernet. Other benefits of this brunette brew…

QuickieChick Laurel House drinking her Goddess Drink St. Patrick's Day isn't just about drinking until you're green in the face. It's also three days before the official start of Spring… cleaning. Combine the two: Green and Clean, and you can't help but explore the obsession-worthy trend of pressing, squeezing, shaking and juicing nutrient-packed fruits, veggies, and sprouts- with purpose! So what's yours?
I'm talking Bites and Sips with Benefits- the concept that everything you put in your mouth has more of a purpose than to fill (or fatten) you up, but can also help to energize, calm, beautify, make you feel sexy, help you focus, and, yes- detoxify your insides. Multitasking what you put in your mouth- that's the QuickieChick way!
And while the trend is to take a basket full of fresh fruits and vegetables, sprouts and grasses and press or juice them, there are tricks to reap the benefits without spending loads of cash on bulk fresh and perishable produce or pre-packaged juices. Here's a super easy,

Man in Bed
Similar to women, penises have their own personalities- regardless of size and shape. Sure there are stereotypes and assumptions, but I know some seriously big-boobed, perfect bodied blonde chicks who aren't more fun and couldn't care less about sex, and some majorly mousy brunettes who have a wild streak like you've never seen!
No, I don't believe that blondes are more fun just because they are blonde, especially in bed. (BTW, I am a blonde, and I have been a brunette). In fact, I have heard more stories from men about blondes, or pretty girls in general, who are the worst lays they have ever had because they just lie there like a dead fish, putting all of their eggs into their good looks to get the guy off, totally uninterested in technique, inner clenching at the right times, or even faking a few sounds for effect. They literally just lay there "looking pretty." Ugh. And no fun for either of you.
So back to penises… same goes. Big, fat, long,

Sucking on a Strawberry
You plan a seemingly "perfect" romantic evening complete with roses, strawberries and champagne; you even douse yourself in expensive cologne. But at the end of the night your lady conks out-no luck. It's not just the green-minded who get turned off (physically) by cut, chemically-sprayed roses and fake scented body sprays. Despite science's best efforts, nature tends to win out when it comes to sexual stimulation.
If you want to get your lady in the mood, skip the chemically-infused cologne and find some black licorice instead. Yes, the scent of the naturally stimulating botanical is said to stimulate a woman's libido more than any other aroma.

Yes, it's true, tanning beds are very very bad for you. And now there's proof.
Tanning beds, we've been told time and time again, are very very bad. But of course fake bake- devotees say they're better than nature's rays. Well, on Tuesday, international cancer experts reigned in, with an announcement published in the medical journal Lancet Oncology saying that tanning beds and the ultraviolet radiation they put out are beyond "bad" and in fact about as lethal as arsenic-yes, poison. They are on par with cigarettes in terms of cancer risk. In fact, the study showed that people who start self tanning before the age of 30 increase their chances of skin cancer by 75 percent!
Still have that need to appear to be sun-kissed? There's a natural way to do it. A way that will allow you to appear as golden as you'd like, but won't risk your life.

… and in "eligible," I mean wealthiest. It's easy to feel like the only eligible single person on Earth. Maybe that's just because you're in the wrong city. Some cities are filled with singles. Other cities are filled with wealthy singles. Kiplinger conducted a study to find out which are the 10 best cities to be single based on income and cost of living.
